eDiets.com is a website that offers its users a broad range of different diet program options that are fully customizable to the unique needs and goals of the user. New registrants to the website begin by completing a free profile that involves their goals for weight loss, the largest challenges that they face for losing weight, and the lifestyle factors that may impact the individual’s ability to lose weight. Upon completing the free profile, the website provides a recommendation for a specific diet program. In order to receive instructions, support, and tools for that program, the individual may sign-up for the membership plan which includes a monthly fee.

At the time of this review, the cost of the program was about $18 per twenty-eight days. The paid membership plan provides members with access to fitness programs, meal plans, and online support geared specifically toward their unique diet program. There is an additional eDiets.com option to have meals delivered directly to the person’s home. This services provides meals that fit perfectly into the individual’s diet program. While the meal delivery diet does come with a hefty price tag, it is optional and some dieters find it well worth the convenience.

Each meal time on the eDiets.com website involves a different kind of meal and fitness program, based on the details revealed about the user in his or her profile. In terms of food, there are many different meal delivery options and recipes available so that dieters can choose according to their tastes, their meal budget, and their unique nutritional needs. The diet programs also recommend various types of supplements, healthy snacks, and fitness equipment to help to improve the results of the dieter’s efforts. That said, the supplements featured and recommended by the website are not typically considered the most effective supplements for assisting with weight loss.


The advantages of eDiets.com website is that the programs give dieters many options from which to choose, so that they will not become bored with the plans early on. Furthermore, they are provided with ongoing support in order to allow an improved potential for achieving their goals.


The disadvantages are that it is not an inexpensive program. Though the monthly fee is low, it can add up quickly over time, and if the plans are followed to the letter, they include a number of additional expenses, from food delivery to supplements and exercise equipment. Other websites have shown that there has been some dissatisfaction among members of the site with the customer service offered by eDiets.com.

eDiets just makes everything easier. It’s a similar concept to what some of the other diet plans that deliver food are like, such as zone or jenny, but it’s all set up so that you can do it really fast from your computer. I know that sounds lazy, but the lazier I can be when I diet, the more likely I am to stick to it. Plus, they have a huge menu. You could go a month without doubling what you eat in a day. Probably longer depending on what you like.

eDiets has such a huge selection. I’ve looked at a lot of different delivery diets, but this one has an enormous menu so that I know that no matter how I feel, I’ll be able to find something that appeals to me.

It’s not like all of those meal diets that gives you only a few options so that by the end of the first month, you’re very sick of everything and wondering why you signed up in the first place.

I am only just getting started on this diet, but there are so many options it’s practically hard to choose! That’s great!

I’ve been ordering meals from ediets.com for just over a week and so far so good. It’s not cheap, but it is very convenient and it works. I lost three pounds in my first week and didn’t have to cook any suppers or lunches!

Make sure that you check their web promotions when you sign up. I did, and I got three meals per day, access to the full website, I could contact a real dietician, and I didn’t have to cook anything, for under $90 for three days. So that’s about $10 per meal. Considering how much I used to eat out, that’s not much more than what I was paying for my food, anyway! It’s not fabulous, but it’s not bad at all.

Your normal shopping bill must be way higher than mine.

When I started with eDiets, I was really impressed. It’s simple to register, but then they take the time to allow you to really customize your plan so that it’s not just a matter of giving you a designated number of calories and sending you on your way. It really is set up so that it suits your requirements as a dieter within a lifestyle and with certain preferences. I’ve been doing this for a couple of weeks now and I think this will be the one that actually gets me to my goal.
